Supporting reform and monitoring of the legal framework, participation and freedom of assembly
ECNL provided technical assistance in the project Improving Co-operation between the NGO’s and the Public Sector and Strengthening the NGO’s Democratic Participation Level in Turkey in partnership with the British Council and Third Sector Foundation of Turkey (TUSEV), funded by the European Commission (2006). And as a result a report was developed on Assessment of the Legal Framework for Cooperation between the CSOs and the Government in Turkey. We worked with local partners to develop recommendations and action plans to enhance cooperation based on the report.
ECNL is currently engaged on initiatives regarding reform of the legal framework for associations and fundraising possibilities, monitoring freedom of assembly. In addition we provided expertise in the development of the code for collaboration and participation, accompanied the preparation of the monitoring tool of the code’s implementation.
